Akshay Kumar, who is currently shooting for his upcoming thriller drama Laxmmi Bomb, was shooting in Ghatkopar on September 18. The actor, who had to reach Versova at the peak hours, ditched his car and opted for Mumbai Metro to reach sooner.

Not only this, but Akshay also shared a video on social media to share his experience with the fans on how he got stuck in a jam and decided to take the Mumbai Metro. When the actor was at a loss as to how he might reach his destination, Raj Mehta, his director of the upcoming film Good Newwz, suggested Akshay could try a ride on the Metro, and that it would save his time.

Akshay also elaborated that had he tried reaching Versova from Ghatkopar by road, he would have easily spent a couple of hours, if not more, to reach his destination. On Metro, it took him just about 20 minutes to reach Versova. Tanishaa Mukerji, Kajol's sister also commented on the video: "Too cute! U look so thrilled about going in the metro so much childlike excitement [sic]"

Akshay Kumar added that the Metro seemed ideal during Mumbai's heavy rains when water flooded the roads. Here's how Mumbai Metro authorities thanked Akshay.
